The charging speed of the Pixel 6 appears to be perplexing and unsatisfactory.

So far, the Pixel 6 series has received praise and excellent feedback for its mix of technology, software, and affordability. Of course, it is far from flawless, and some of the flaws have just surfaced. The majority of the concerns appear to center on Google’s first in-screen fingerprint scanner implementation. Although, there is some issue with the charging speed of the Pixel 6. Google has now revealed how quickly the phones actually charge, and it’s as horrible as some had feared.

The phones’ specifications sheets only discuss how long the battery would last and how quickly the phones will charge while using Google’s first-party 30W USB-C charger. People naturally assumed that it would charge at 30W. However, this appears not to be the case. To be honest, Google never disclosed the charging speed of neither the Pixel 6 nor the Pixel 6 Pro on those specifications sheets.

In a nutshell, it limits charging speeds to 21W and 23W for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, respectively. But it may charge much slower. That’s because Google engineered the phones’ batteries to “find a balance between battery life, longevity, and quick charging,” according to Google. Now, Google is providing a quick behind-the-scenes look at how it has implemented the Pixel 6’s charging mechanism, possibly in response to criticisms of slower charging speeds.

The periodic charging speed of Pixel 6:

When the battery is extremely low, the Pixel 6 will charge at its maximum rate of 21W or 23W in order to reach 50% in 30 minutes. It then reduces the speed slightly so that the battery has an 80 percent charge after another 30 minutes and gradually reduces the power consumption until the battery is entirely charged. This staggered charging strategy is commonly used to extend the life of a battery over time. And the Pixel 6 may even suspend charging entirely under certain situations.

Surprisingly, these top rates of 21W and 23W are the exact values Google provides for wireless charging, at least with the second-generation Pixel Stand. Other Qi-compliant wireless chargers will be slower, especially as third-party chargers sometimes have a rate restriction of 12W. Google also suggests using just its certified charger because it supports the USB PD 3.0 PPS standard. However alternative USB PD and BC1.2 chargers are also compatible.
